About the Program
The Provost’s Graduate Academic Engagement Fellowship at the Netter Center for Community Partnerships (PGAEF @ NC) is an opportunity for PhD students across all schools and fields at the University of Pennsylvania. Fellows are outstanding students whose scholarship significantly involves Academically Based Community Service (ABCS) and related activities, including locally based community problem-solving, engaged scholarship, service learning, and learning by teaching in public schools.
The Fellowship will involve the following:
Graduate Academic Engagement Fellows may follow one of two tracks:
Provost's Graduate Academic Engagement Fellows will be encouraged to publish scholarly articles, some of which may emerge from the interdisciplinary, faculty-student seminar. Fellows will also have an opportunity to present their research to schools and community organizations in West Philadelphia that partner with the Netter Center. Working through the Netter Center, particularly its university-assisted community schools program, they will actively engage with West Philadelphia on behalf of the University, and their work as Fellows will inform their future scholarship.
PhD Students will be eligible to apply in the spring semester of their first year of study or any year thereafter provided they have at least two years left in their program at the start of the next term.
Each applicant must have a Penn faculty sponsor to help oversee the student’s project. The sponsor may be the student’s advisor or another relevant faculty member.
